Wild Beauty: Industrial Vibes Meet Romance

Submitted by Charlotte of Frond & Bloom, this styled shoot was the vision of the talented Chris Harris from Ivory Fayre Photography. An alternative take on a traditional wedding shoot, it was inspired by the dominating iron viaduct, with a serious rock'n'roll edge that we can't get enough of here at Save the Date Magazine HQ. Get stuck into the eye candy…


We’re chatting to Charlotte of Frond & Bloom all about the styled shoot and those incredible details…

“The menus and name settings were hand-crafted using edible ink on edible paper, which was a great touch. The cake had a brushed metallic finish which contrasted great against the white of the icing and the blush edible paper that wrapped the cake.

A colour palette of greens, soft whites and blush pink flowers were used to soften the industrial feel, while the style was wild and free to be in keeping with the venue. The bouquet was tied with a bridal sash incrusted with jewels to add that rock and roll edge. The naked tipi was dressed with lots of silvery foliage and would make the perfect focal point to any wedding ceremony. It could then be used as a photo opportunity for your evening guests.

That rock and roll vibe was carried through the fashion and jewellery that the models wore, while the make up added a real edge. The model’s make up was kept minimal so that the focus was purely on the eyes. Her hair was left wild and undone which worked perfectly for the overall style of the shoot.”


“The viaduct was a huge inspiration for the shoot which we wanted to embrace and work with. The raw industrial element this brought inspired the look for everything else, from the stationery, decor and flowers to the cake, make up and styling. A fresh take on the boho theme.”
